bnpa: Bayesian Networks & Path Analysis

This project aims to enable the method of Path Analysis to infer causalities from data. For this we propose a hybrid approach, which uses Bayesian network structure learning algorithms from data to create the input file for creation of a PA model. The process is performed in a semi-automatic way by our intermediate algorithm, allowing novice researchers to create and evaluate their own PA models from a data set.
